Real Madrid Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo admits that his character has earned him his fair share of enemies and that he has created an ugly image for his fans. “I have made many mistakes, but I’m happy to have made them. Because I have come to be better – both as a player and as a human”, he said in an interview with French magazine ‘So Foot’.
Ronaldo missed an all important Copa Del Rey final against fierce rivals Barcelona but CR7 seems to have little concern over it. The Real Madrid player believes that he has become less impulsive with the passing of time. The success he has enjoyed throughout his career he puts down to hard work. “I have worked with players of incredible talent. More than I have? It’s hard to say. But a quality that is always a winner is regularity. Many players are good for five, ten or fifteen games. But you have to be good for 60 games in a season”, he pointed out.
The Portuguese’s next aim is to win a World or European Cup with his country. Either of these would be the cup to crown all the ones he has won over the years. “I know it’ll be difficult, but everything is possible if you work at it”, he assured.
Bale: Scoring Winning Goal is a ‘Dream Come True’
Real Madrid’s match winner Gareth Bale says he is delighted to have won his first trophy against Barcelona and hopes Real Madrid can win the treble.
The Wales international – in his debut season for the club after his world record move from Tottenham – scored the winner with seven minutes left as Barcelona were beaten 2-1 in Valencia.
“It’s a dream come true, not just because I scored but because of the work of the whole team,” Bale said.
“It was really special. We’ve won the first of the three available titles and we have to keep fighting for everything. But now we have to be thinking about the next game and nothing else”.
“This win is for all the fans and we hope that it will be the first of many to come. Thank you all for your support during the season. We have worked hard as a team”.
Bale drew Madrid’s attention while at Tottenham after producing stunning goal after stunning goal. He has scored some memorable ones during his first season in Spain too, but none more so than the one to win his first senior trophy.
“I had to sprint, Bartra pushed me and tried to block my path but wasn’t able to,” he added.
“I had to go around him. It was great to score the goal but even better to win the match and pick up a title for Real Madrid.
“The atmosphere was fantastic. It has been a perfect night. I’m delighted to have won my first title with Madrid. I think we could go on to win even more this season.”
